Bill pre-filed in Ky. would impose fine on anyone forbidding breastfeeding
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Places that break Kentucky's breastfeeding law could soon have to pay fines.
A bill pre-filed in the Kentucky Senate aims to impose financial penalties.
Current law says a woman can breastfeed in any location, public or private. The bill would call for a $500 fine for the first offense for anyone who prevents a woman from breastfeeding and a $1,000 fine for each offense after that.
This comes after a woman claims a manager at the St. Matthews Texas Roadhouse demanded she cover up while breastfeeding and attempted to put a napkin on the baby's face.
She is now suing Texas Roadhouse.
